International Travel During the Fall

Beginning June 1, university-sponsored travel may resume under these guidelines. University-sponsored travel includes: conference attendance; research travel, including archival and field research; internships that are required for your program.

You must complete the International Travel Request Form if you plan to undertake international university-sponsored travel or if you are unvaccinated and you plan to undertake domestic university-sponsored travel.

Within a week after you complete this form, you will receive an email from the GSAS Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs, which will either grant or deny your request to undertake university-sponsored travel.
